>> announcer: nbc 10 news starts now. good morning. this is nbc 10 news today. thanks for being with us. i'm rosemary connors. it's just after 5:30 on this saturday. meteorologist krystal klei is tracking that wet weather that started off our weekend, but will not end our weekend. krystal, fill us in. >> yeah. wide variety of conditions for our weekend. so yesterday we had the constant rain, periods of heavy rain, everyone seeing 1.5 to 2 inches. by the time the day was over, today, it's going to be a gray and damp day. not necessarily rainy, though. take a look, we've got some light rain that's sitting along to the west of us, starting to move into berks county and nearing chester county. and what you don't see is that across the rest of the area, there is still some drizzle or misting conditions. that doesn't really pick up on radar well, but that is occurring. you might need the windshield wipers, but very different picture from what we saw yesterday. the thing is, those roadways are now quite wet and they're going to stay that way because we are going to see those cloudy conditions hold through the day and a bit of a damp forecast, as well.
5:32 am
there are the temperatures we're at right now. in philadelphia, 32 degrees, wh what it feels like currently. these are your feels-like conditions. in reading, feeling like 31. even farther south, feeling like about the mid- to upper 30s. it's a chilly start to your morning on top of the fact that it is a little rainy still out there. so this is your weekend in a nutshell. this morning, light rain, still cloudy. this afternoon, cloudy, damp, no longer rain, though, and it will be breezy out there. but the good news is, if gray day is not your thing, tomorrow we are sunny and considerably warmer as well. we'll view the entire weekend and go into the next period of rain that pix up on the ten-day forecast, coming up. now to that breaking news out of southwest philadelphia. a man is in the hospital right now after police had to pull him from a collapsed row home early this morning. nbc 10's randy gyllenhaal is live at the scene to walk us through what happened here. randy? >> reporter: yeah, rosemary, one person, one man injured inside this row home that collapsed.
5:33 am
as you can see behind me here at the scene in southwest philly, emergency crews are beginning to wrap up and clear some of the trucks out of here. this is near 61st and woodland in southwest. neighbors tell us they heard the collapse and it woke them up early this morning. one neighbor telling us they even heard the victim screaming from the collapsed home. the 59-year-old man was taken to presbyterian hospital in stable condition. parts of the home, we're told, fell into the street. neighbors called 911. rescue crews even had to call in a crane to help clear all the debris. >> came outside and i asked, what happened? they said, the building collapsed. >> this is crazy, because i just woke up with all the fire trucks outside, and i was like, what's going on? >> reporter: now, it's unclear why this row home went down overnight, but during the spring in philadelphia, we tend too often see structural issues in some of these the older buildings, especially after wet weather and we had a lot of rain last night.
5:34 am
we are told we should be getting some sort of update from i shall if officials here on the scene. we'll bring that to you in the next half hour. >> thanks for that, randy. this weekend, family members and philadelphia police are both looking for answers in the stabbing of a couple. here's what we know. yesterday, a man discovered his mother dead and his father critically wounded at their home in point breeze. nbc 10 was on south 19th street last night where police were still gathering evidence from the crime scene. investigators say someone stabbed the husband and wife multiple times. the wife is dead. police tell us it does not appear that there was a break-in at the house. the husband remains in critical condition. philadelphia district attorney seth williams will not practice law while fighting corruption charges in federal court. yesterday, wuilliams voluntaril suspended his law license, but he says he will stay in office in an administrative role. williams was back in court yesterday to inform the judge he has a new defense attorney. the d.a.'s former lawyer left

5:40 am
tore through homes and caused the partial collapse of a church. fortunately, no reports of any injuries yet. now, this same storm system, that's the one that brought us all that pouring rain yesterday. i think it's safe to say we faired much better in this storm. first alert meteorologist krystal klei has some more details on when this wet weather will finally move on out of here. krystal? >> yeah, we saw a lot of rain with this thing, but areas much farther south across the country actually felt the damage from this storm system. it was a big one as it moved through. now they're looking in philadelphia, right in center city. you can see the flags are blowing around. notice there's no raindrops on the camera, because the rain has really finally stopped. just some light sprinkles out there now, through your morning hours. then, we totally end the rain in the afternoon. current winds, you just saw, a little breezy this morning. 13 miles per hour in philly, wilmington at 10 and dover air force base at 14-mile-per-hour winds. those winds are coming in from the north. and today, they will remain
5:41 am
north-northwest flow. we're also going to be starting to dry out the area with this pattern. so we're at 40 degrees right now in philadelphia. we'll be at 43 around 10:00 a.m., mid-40s through noon. but notice it really don't warm much here. we're upper 40s to low 50s as we get into the afternoon with those breezy conditions persisting. and mostly cloudy conditions, although i think late day, some peeks of sunshine are possible, but really just some peeks, not a sunny forecast by any means. in our pennsylvania suburbs, same deal. right now we're in the upper 30s. it's chilly out there, it actually feels like we're in the lower 30s due to the breeziness. temperatures will start to climb to the mid- to upper 40s by noon. and same deal, low 50s in the afternoon with breezy conditions. and just a few peeks of those rays breaking through the clouds, as we get later into the day. along the jersey shore, 50 is the temperature now. a little more mild. it will stay, though, right around there. we may see a bit of a dip, you see, in our temperatures through the morning hours, but overall, we'll stay pretty constant low
5:42 am
to mid-50s through the day. the best we'll be able to do with those breezy conditions throughout. today, gray and damp. tomorrow, rather, sunny, and we'll go through that a little more closely coming up. online registration is now open for the philadelphia marathon. the race is set for sunday, november 19th. runners who sign up before may 31st will get a discount on their registration fee. you can also register for other races during marathon weekend. just tap the nbc 10 app for a link to the marathon website. before the marathon this fall come the blue cross broad street run this spring. the 10-mile race is sunday, maybe 7th, and the only place to watch it from start to finish is right here on nbc 10. okay, this is my kind of race. thousands of runners will be hitting the streets this morning for charity and for some special treats. the fourth annual hot chocolate run begins and ends right in front of the philadelphia museum of art. here's the deal. the finish line, runners will get hot chocolate, fondue, and a

5:46 am
terror groups are in possession of and are using airport screening machines to test their designs. we spoke to passengers at the baggage claim in philadelphia to get their response to the new intelligence report. >> they really look at it and they're finding different ways to put explosives nef s in ever. >> people can still put electronics in checked baggage when flying from the middle east to the u.s. that's because checked bags are better able to ethe tedetect exs than the ones that screen carry-on bags. a recall throo let you know about. last week, the maker recalled thousands of epipens in countries outside of america, because of report that the emergency anti-allergy shots didn't work. the problem could be potentially life threatening. the recall covers epipens distributed from december 2015 through july 2016. for the full details about this recall, just go to our website,

5:48 am
tracking that wet weather to start out of our weekend. krystal? >> you know, there's one or two nice days and then we get these rainy, gray days, it cools us down and we have to climb back up. this weekend, the exact same situation. here's our checklist. this is kind of a tough day. because we're going to transition out of the rain period this morning. so the umbrella, if you're getting an early, early start to your day, you want to grab. but if you go out this afternoon, you're going to need it. a hat, you might want. it will be a little breezy throughout the day, on top of the fact there's a lot of moisture lingering out there this morning, which for some of us ladies mean the hair not perfect for your saturday. sunglasses, you don't need. because i do not expect a lot of sunshine, although tomorrow you'll want those. as for the winter coat and outdoor plans, that depends on your level of comfort here. i would say a coat this morning, probably, you'll want to grab it. things are chilly to start. later in the day, not likely going to need it. and we are looking at outside plans, certainly something you can do, although tomorrow will be a prettier day than today,
5:49 am
where things will still be pretty gray and cloudy. here's the radar and satellite view. we've already got the clouds in place. that's the satellite layer. then you see the green, that's the radar layer. the green is such a light color, that indicates some really light rain. there is some misting and drizzle out there pretty much across the region as well this morning. so if you're driving early or getting a very early run in, just note that you're going to run into some of that. but as we progress throughout the day, that really moves out pretty quickly, and temperatures will boost, but only a tad. we'll stay below average. here are your delaware neighborhoods right now. marshalton, harmony hills, glasgow, newark, all at 41 degrees. we go farther south, and we see a tad warmer. shelton at 43. lincoln, you're at 45. and reading at 47 degrees. in our philadelphia neighborhoods, we're at 40 in rittenhouse, the airport, 49, manayunk, and also at 39 in parkwood. temperatures should climb to the low 50s by this afternoon, for not a terribly cold day, but a
5:50 am
little cooler than maybe you would hope to kick off the first day of april. here's the hour-by-hour forecast. some of those spotty showers, they'll continue to move on by in our morning hours. but i think by around 10:00 to 11:00 a.m., the rain really cuts it out. we'll still have cloudiness around your lunchtime and the clouds linger through 4:30 here. just some peeks of sun are possible and maybe an isolated shower as we get into the engineer mercer county. the rest of us, we stay dry. and there go the clouds for our sunday morning, and we stay that way all sunday. we are talking sunshine, clear conditions in the forecast. here's a look at the weekend forecast. 50s for us today, mostly low 50s with those cloudy conditions, but tomorrow is when we break through the to the low 60s, at 61 in philly and 62 in delaware. sunny conditions as well for your sunday. the streak is over! mississippi state upset top-seeded kentucky on this overtime buzzer beater in the women's final four last night. the huskies had won 111 straight

5:52 am
especially of basketball, especially nba basketball, i think they're quite common. >> men against boys last night. sixers in cleveland taking on the cavs. gets heated quick. justin anderson making contact with lebron james here. the king goes down, can't mess with the king. moments later, a little retaliation from khiry irving, putting anderson into the bench. it is on! maybe not. then takes it down the court for his own three. sixers lose rawlins, the formery released by the giants last night, so his career could be over. phillies back home last night, the boys are back in town arriving at citizens bank park. the season opener is two days away, monday in cincinnati. and how about the story of brock stassi, making the majors for the first time at 27 years old. he was in tears when he found out and that video went viral. >> i wasn't really able to hold
